In the year 2000, it is estimated that over 20,000 men underwent transperineal interstitial permanent prostate brachytherapy (TIPPB) for treatment of prostate cancer. Trans-urethral ultrasound (TUUS) is a new interactive, real-time 3D imaging method that may be effective in therapy-guidance during and after TIPPB. TUUS provides higher resolution than trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS). TUUS can be used to accurately localize radioactive seeds and therefore contribute to more accurate determination… CONTINUE READING
